My Running

I have been running for 35 years. In that time I have run events from 400m on the track to the marathon and cross country events.

I represented Surrey at the Inter Counties cross country championships, 5000m on the track and the South of England at cross country.

I won individual county medals at 5000m, 10000m,         10 miles and cross country.

As part of the Aldershot, Farnham and District club side I won South of England medals at cross country and road relays, and in 1997 was part of the Aldershot quartet that finished 3rd team in the London marathon.

I won or finished high up in local road races such as Dorking 10, Wokingham ½ marathon, Burnham Beeches   ½ marathon, Finchley 20 etc.

Training

With my own running I design all my own training schedules, because they fit my personality, time available for training and are specific to my goals, but I always listen to advice, and adjust what I do because a 3rd party can see something that I might miss.

Coaching

I have obtained the England Athletics Leader in Running Fitness qualification.

I am DBS certified by England Athletics.

During 2003 & 2004 I set schedules for a group of senior men at Guildford and Godalming athletic club. My schedules saw the team at the time finish in their highest position in Division 1 of the Surrey Cross Country league, and individuals went on to set personal bests at a variety of distances.

One athlete went from running 10k in 35 mins to 32 mins, and another ran a marathon in 2hr 44mins.

I am now helping my daughter with her running.
